"Sunset heaven"

El Paso is right on the Mexican border and shares culture and more with its sister city, Juarez. It’s also one of the safest cities in America.

In El Paso, you’ll see sunsets so picture perfect, it’s like they’re made for Roy Rogers and Trigger to ride off into. El Paso is next to the border of  Juarez, Mexico, and we’re great neighbors to each other. El Paso is one of the safest cities in America, and was just recently named one the most affordable places to live and retire by Forbes. With the picturesque Franklin Mountains in the middle of town, El Paso is an awesome place to hike, jog, or rock climb and find the petroglyphs at Hueco Tanks National Park. Weather is perfect, you can sit on your front yard every day at dusk and watch the sun go down. But if you get tired of that, you can go downtown and watch our championship triple-A baseball team, the Chihuahuas!
